One will marry an Englishman and lead a life of comfort in the palatial rooms of the Cape Coast Castle. The other will be captured in a raid on her village; imprisoned in the very same castle; and sold into slavery. Homegoing follows the parallel paths of these sisters and their descendants through eight generations from the Gold Coast to the plantations of Mississippi; from the American Civil War to Jazz Age Harlem. Yaa Gyasi's extraordinary novel illuminates slavery's troubled legacy both for those who were taken and those who stayed-and shows how the memory of captivity has been inscribed on the soul of our nation.
